Researchers in the cloud

Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 2.28.48 PMI have just published, a short Science & Society article in Trends in Biochemical Sciences (TIBS) about the emergence of online tools for researchers using cloud-based technologies. This is part of a TBIS series of articles on “Research 2.0” with topics ranging from open access and crowd-funding, to new digital tools for researchers.

With a similar approach to what I am doing with Connected Researchers, this article lists tools that are changing (or have the potential of changing) the way researchers do and communicate their work. Because this article is published in a journal non-tech-savvy researchers read, I am particularly hopeful that it will bring more researchers to the digital tool adopter side.
